How Are Flowers Named?



Have you ever wondered how flowers get their names?

One that's extremely appropriately named is Queen Anne's lace.

It is so delicate yet elegant, too, and is very fit for a queen!


It's lovely alone or tucked into a bouquet.

ARE YOU FAMILIAR WITH QUEEN ANNE'S LACE?

I'm not familiar with it, but how gorgeous is that? And so appropriately named.

After moving here to Cary, NC I started noticing a beautiful flower on the side of the road. I googled it and found out that it's Queen Anne's Lace.

Queen Anne's Lace is abundant here, a lovely wildflower along roadsides. It is a favorite and always lets me know summer is here.

Apparently some areas consider it a noxious weed and try to limit its growth. I just googled the history of its name and there's some interesting folklore behind it. I think it's very pretty and if it grows with wild abandon, then I'm all for it. :) Best wishes, Tammy

Good question. I didn't give some thought to names of flowers. Queen Anne's lace is the lovely one. Have a nice Thursday.

Yes I do wonder about the names of flowers! I love Queen Anne's lace. It's hard to think of it as a weed.
Hope all is well with you Susan.

I love Queen Anne's lace - I think when added to a bouquet it finished it out.

Many people with allergies are highly allergic to this flower. I've always loved it and think the name is very appropriate.

Years ago when I taught a school age summer day camp we painted gorgeous pictures using queen Anne's lace.
